Which Harris bipod model do you use?

I am reviewing my LRH Gear Shop offerings in the bipod section. Please tell me:


  • height
  • swivel or not
  • notch or not

A helpful answer would be formatted like this:

Quote:

9-13
S
not notch

6-9
not S
notch

9~13"

Swivel

Use both notched and not. But have mixed emotions about them.

Notched seems faster and easier. But, the notched has a noticable amount of spring loaded slack on the lowest position. This is the position I use most and have seen it affect group size on lighter rifles. So I am thinking the friction lock might be better for this reason.

Compare the two by pushing upward on the leg while they are in their lowest position. You will see the notched has a substantial ammount of spring loaded slack. If the weight of the rifle is right, I have seen it cause the rifle to jump durring recoil and groups open up. Especially off of concrete or a hard surface. Changing the bipod to a non-notched corrected this for me and groups tightened.

Re: Which Harris bipod model do you use?

I have 12 BR models (6-9") on my Tactical rifles. These model covers pretty much all my shooting needs. I use the non-rotating model. I find the regular model is steady and the legs can be adjusted for cant pretty fast. I keep 1 prone (9-13") in my shooting kit if I need more height. Have one notch model, not too fond of it. Doesn't have fine enough adjustments for me.
